#Dallas: Snoop Dogg and The Game lead peaceful protest to LAPD

US rappers Snoop Dogg and The Game led about 100people o the grounds of the Li’s Angeles Police Department in LA to lay their grievances concerning the recent spate of killings of black people  bg police and the killing of four police officers by Snipers in Dallas.

The Game wore a H.U.N.T shirt – Hate Us No More and Hunt Us No More.


The two rappers also met the mayor Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, Police Chief Charlie Beck and some top police officials as the graduation ceremony of new LAPD recruits went on.

Snoop Dogg said The point of the march was to reintroduce the Police Department to members of the community it serves:

“Respect is key. Think about the person you’re pulling over and their family. Because that way, you’ ll have more of a consideration of life and de-escalate as opposed to escalate.”

While The Game told the new recruit during the graduation ceremony

“I would be lying to you if I didn’t say I was saddened by what happened in Dallas. I would be lying to you if I didn’t say I was angered about what occurred in Minnesota and Louisiana and Fresno. The cops that died in Dallas weren’t the cops that shot and killed Philando or Alton. As much as Philando and Alton didn’t deserve that, those cops in Dallas didn’t deserve that. And the only thing I could think of was to initiate peace on both sides, so that’s why I’m here.”
